Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

Two re­ports re­leased last month shed light on Qatar's com­pet­i­tive­ness and in­no­va­tion. While the coun­try leads the re­gion in the former and is steadily im­prov­ing, there is much left to be de­sired in its push to­wards in­no­va­tion.

The Global In­no­va­tion In­dex ranked Qatar in 50th place, be­hind Saudi Ara­bia (43) and the United Arab Emi­rates (47) and men­tioned that th­ese coun­tries (in ad­di­tion to Le­banon, Azer­bai­jan, Ye­men, Al­ge­ria, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait) show be­low-par per­for­mances com­pared to their in­come lev­els. The re­port listed out some of the coun­tries strengths and weak­ness as men­tioned here (the list is not ex­haus­tive).
